On This Day in 1924
Samuel Gompers died at the age of 74. Gompers served as president of the American Federation of Labor from 1886 to 1894 and from 1895 to his death. What does labor want? Gompers said, We want more schoolhouses and less jails; more books and less arsenals; more learning and less vice; more constant work and less crime; more leisure and less greed; more justice and less revenge; in fact more of the opportunities to cultivate our better natures, to make manhood more noble, womanhood more beautiful and childhood more happy and bright.”

Drivers at Mid-Atlantic Baking approved in January a new contract that provides a 12% wage increase over the four-year term. Other gains include an increase in the company contribution to the 401(k) plans; additional paid time off for all members under the sick leave policy updated to comply with Maryland law; and improvements to company safety policies.

Negotiations for four new contracts are underway at Anne Arundel County on behalf of fire battalion chiefs, correction program specialists, deputy sheriffs, and park rangers.

Contract talks are ongoing at KraftHeinz, for pressmen and drivers at The Baltimore Sun; Holly Poultry; YRC Freight, USF Holland New Penn; and newly-organized service agents at DHL.

In organizing news, drivers at Arnold Packaging in Baltimore and graphic artists at Hood Printing in Randallstown recently voted to join Teamsters Local 355. A first contract was quickly achieved at Hood Printing that reflects the Teamster standard for wages, benefits, and grievance procedure. Negotiations for a first contract continue at Arnold Packaging.
